Tour Credit- Emiko’s I Believe You US Tour 2018
Drummer/Vocalist Lee Piatelli hails from the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts. I started my musical journey at the age of 6, and began playing professionally at the age of 15. Since then drumming has been and continues to be my passion and purpose in life. I currently gig throughout California with several artists including Liz Wiegard, Mick Sweda, and Atlantic Crossing, one of the nation’s top Rod Stewart tribute bands.
I have years of experience with auxiliary and orchestral percussion dating back to grade school and I have performed on several occasions with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the New Bedford Wind Ensemble, the Long Beach Chamber Orchestra and most recently I’ve recorded at Capitol Records with the Lyra Chamber Orchestra.
In December of 2016 I graduated from The Musicians Institute with a degree in Music Performance. Aside from playing live and studio work, I have been teaching privately for 5 years and enjoy teaching students how to harness their passion. I recently completed an American tour with Emiko, performing across 19 states on her "I Believe You" tour. Whilst on the road we fronted numerous song writing clinics at Sam Ash locations nation wide.
I currently endorse WFL III Drums, Big Fat Snare Drum, Natural Acoustics Lab Shakers, and Grombal Cymbal Sleeves.
